Where's the hue & cry, Freddie?

Why does it matter whether or not a “prog” has used a baby as a prop before? The circumstance is that the baby’s parents are dead and Trump seems to be celebrating that. I don’t care if a hundred “progs” have used babies to get attention before; the optics of this photo by Trump is extremely inappropriate. I don’t see how you can defend it.

Tito Anchondo, the uncle of baby Paul Anchondo, told The Associated Press on Friday that Trump “was just there to give his condolences and he was just being a human being.” He previously told NPR that he and his brother were Trump supporters.

“Is it that hard to try and understand that a family is trying to not be sad at a moment like this?” said Anchondo, who also appears in the photo along with his sister. “We’re trying to be as strong as we can. … My brother is gone.”

The child’s parents, Andre and Jordan Anchondo, were among 22 killed and about two dozen wounded when a gunman opened fire Saturday inside a Walmart packed with shoppers. Authorities say Jordan Ancondo was shielding the baby, while her husband shielded them both. The boy suffered broken fingers.

Of course the progressive left won't let the poor man say anything more:

Tito Anchondo declined to describe the encounter with Trump in more detail, saying he had received death threats. “We should be coming together as a country at this time instead of threatening each other with hate messages,” he said.

I'm defending nothing. I'm merely throwing into sharp relief the hypocrisy of your selective outrage.

You're firing on all cylinders, Freddie. From the Collins English Dictionary:

Trump Administration Releases New Rule That Makes It Easier for the Government to Reject Green Card Requests

Quote:
It's based on whether you'll be a net drain on the country's resources, so obviously this is both irrational and racist.
The Trump administration on Monday released the final version of a controversial rule that dramatically increases the government's ability to reject green cards for people who are deemed likely to depend on government aid such as food stamps, housing assistance and Medicaid.

The new "public charge" rule would link a subject's immigration status to their income and their use of certain public programs.

Shocka...

Audit Finds 84,000 Duplicate Voter Records in California’s ‘Motor Voter’ System

Quote:
California’s ‘Motor Voter’ system has produced the kind of results that you would expect from a power-grabbing, progressive bureaucracy.
California’s ambitious effort to automate voter registration at Department of Motor Vehicle offices produced almost 84,000 duplicate records and more than twice that number with political party mistakes, according to an audit released Friday by state officials.

The analysis covered just the first five months of the new “motor voter” program, which was launched in April 2018. It found a wide array of problems with the rollout of the DMV system, including a limited amount of testing as well as inconsistent and confusing lines of communication between the state agencies involved in its creation. Many of the findings align with documents discovered by the Los Angeles Times in an investigation earlier this year of the motor voter program.

Auditors reviewed more than 3 million voter registration files, comparing records from both DMV and California’s secretary of state. They found 83,684 duplicate voter registrations, a mistake attributed to inconsistencies in what was listed for voters’ political party preferences.

When you've lost Vox...

Even Vox Writer Says Warren, Harris Were Wrong To Say Michael Brown Was Murdered By White Cop

Quote:
A writer from liberal website Vox.com called out Democratic presidential candidates Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris on Monday for falsely claiming former Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson murdered Michael Brown during an incident that sparked the Black Lives Matter movement.

On the five-year anniversary of Brown’s death Friday, Warren said Wilson, who is white, “murdered” Brown during an Aug. 9, 2014, traffic stop.

Harris also said Brown, who is black, was murdered.

Probably.
